Faversham woman pleads guilty to waste offences  

A woman from Faversham has been given an 18 month conditional discharge after pleading guilty to committing householder duty of care offences, in a prosecution brought by Swale Borough Council.

Mandy Elliot, 37, of Edward Vinson Drive admitting to failing to pass her waste to an authorised person, leading to a fridge freezer being fly tipped at Iron Wharf Boat yard, Faversham, on or around 01.06.2017.

She appeared on Monday 17th December at Medway Magistrates Court.

She was also ordered to pay a contribution towards the Council’s prosecution costs of £200, and a Victim Surcharge of £20.

Cllr David Simmons, cabinet member for environment and rural affairs at the council, said:

“Residents are tired of seeing other people’s rubbish being left around the borough.

“We are determined to do all we can to track down those who fly-tip, and take the necessary legal action against them.”

A new Fixed Penalty Notice for householders comes into force this month. Anyone who fails to check that their waste carrier has a licence could be given a £400 Fixed Penalty Notice.
